Scheduled to take place on March 15, 2011 in Tokyo Japan, this performance was cancelled due to the earthquake of March 11, 2011 and subsequent nuclear crisis. It was rescheduled for grüntaler9 on April 7th 2012 at 7pm.
The white make-up used in this piece is the traditional Japanese make-up of the Kabuki Theater and the Geisha. All materials were purchased in Japan for the originally scheduled performance. The glass of the windows is painted with theatrical white face make-up: the window is thus treated as a face. The uncovered face of the artist is used to remove the white make-up from the window: the face is thus treated as a tool. The artist takes one photograph of herself after each round of withdrawing paint from the window – documenting as the face as tool removes, transfers, absorbs the white material, onto the body of the artist.
